GOP Senator: Lindsey Graham Is a “Bro With No Ho”

Richard Ellis/ZUMA


After announcing he’d have a “rotating first lady” if elected to the White House, forever bachelor Sen. Lindsey Graham is taking some heat from fellow Republicans. But not for the reasons you might think.

“Did you see that?” Illinois Republican Sen. Mark Kirk said on Thursday, caught forever by a hot mic. “He’s going to have a rotating first lady. He’s a bro with no ho.”

Kirk’s comments, recorded by Huff Post’s Sam Stein, are relatively innocuous. What could possibly be wrong with two male Republican senators in their fifties using words like “rotating” and “ho” to describe their non-game. Compared to them, Mitt Romney’s “binders full of women” looks positively respectful.

Meanwhile in the real world, Graham is “dying” for the debate on abortion rights with his push for a 20-week abortion ban. Slaying it with the ladies, Lindsey.
